Starting today, the two companies will successively launch "fashiontvscan," a smartphone application that features free-of-charge fashion-related content services and advertising services for businesses in 23 countries and regions (*).
fashiontvscan lets users view videos and read news stories on the latest in fashion. As users direct their smartphones towards TV commercials, newspaper ads, magazine ads, outdoor signboards, posters and others, the app recognizes images, photos and logos then guides users to designated websites, where they can obtain detailed information on fashion items, campaign information and coupons.
The fashiontvscan app is equipped with NEC's independently developed "GAZIRU" image recognition technology, recognized as one of the world's top-class recognition technologies. The app works with GAZIRU to smoothly display information and allow users to conveniently shop online, saving them the trouble of searching the Internet.
The two companies will capitalize on fashiontvscan to offer services that guide consumers to company websites and provide big data analysis, including marketing-related services that help analyze the behavioral history of users guided to such websites.
fashiontv is an exclusive fashion-dedicated entertainment channel, airing programs featuring the latest fashion trends on a 24/7 basis to approximately 350 million households throughout the world. With brand power in the fashion industry and a global-level viewer base, it operates an extensive online advertising business, including a wide range of promotions on YouTube. Today, amid trends toward multi-channel corporate promotions and the expansion of e-commerce markets, there is a need for effective promotions that seamlessly attract users from conventional ads and video content to online services.
NEC is currently placing a focus on the social solutions business in order to offer leading-edge big-data-based technologies, products and services under the brand name of NEC Big Data Solutions. The services provided under this partnership represent a forward looking expansion of big data-related sales into a wider range of industries, which is necessary for the future growth of big data-related business.
Features of fashiontvscan include:
1.Services for Individual Customers

The service supports companies' promotions by guiding fashiontvscan users to designated websites when they hold their smartphones over television, newspaper and magazine ads, outdoor signboards, posters and others. This allows advertisers to offer users detailed product and promotional information, lead them to their shopping websites and make coupons available.
2.Behavioral Data Collection Service
fashiontvscan makes use of GAZIRU PLUS, a service newly added to GAZIRU, to collect data on what interests users and what information they have obtained. This allows businesses to offer optimized promotions according to targets, objectives, places and time slots, and to plan their marketing by analyzing collected data.
Going forward, the two companies will continue to enrich the content available through fashiontvscan and to expand its availability. They will also build ties with telecommunications operators and advertising agencies throughout the world in order to expand the advertising service business.
fashiontv and NEC will display this service at Mobile World Congress 2014, Hall 3, Stand No. 3N10, scheduled in Barcelona from Monday, February 24, 2014 to Thursday, February 27, 2014.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling?

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
